We'll use the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options, giving you the customized, individual care that you deserve.
Your First Appointment
Your first appointment will give you the opportunity to meet our team, as well as, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your first appointment, Dr. Spencer will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms.
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary.
- Help you create a customized treatment plan.
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans.
We will explain everything that you will need to know about your orthodontic treatment, so that you can choose what's best for you. If you'd like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Spencer, please call (903) 739-2288.
What happens after the initial consultation?
If you do choose to receive orthodontic treatment, you will need to schedule your first appointment. Your first appointment is when Dr. Spencer will place your new orthodontic appliance. Typically, this appointment is no longer than one hour, and then you're on your way toward your new smile!
Visiting the orthodontist every 4-8 weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 20-40 minutes. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are scheduled around your busy schedule; so that you will spend less time in the dental chair, and more time enjoying the things you love to do.
We understand that "life happens," so if you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, call our practice at (903) 739-2288; we're looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
